Power Outage

power outageOncor Energy strives to supply affordable, reliable power to its customers, but power outages do occasionally happen caused by:

  • Fires
  • Storms
  • Tree limbs
  • Vehicles
  • Wildlife

If you experience a power outage, it’s easy to notify Oncor via the internet or phone. They will dispatch crews to locate and repair the outage as quickly as possible.

Everyone has a responsibility to protect their homes and their families in these situations. You can greatly lessen the impact during a power outage by knowing what to do if your power goes out. This involves three basic steps:

  1. When the Power Goes Out
  2. When a Street Light is Out
  3. Oncor StreetLight Video

What to Do When the Power Goes Out

Before you report an outage:

  1. Check to see if your neighbors still have power.
  2. Check the Oncor Energy Outage Map or visit the Storm Center website to see if an outage has been reported. Type your address in the Search field to locate your area on the map.
  3. Check your breakers if you can do so safely. The outage may exist only in your home or business because of a blown fuse or a tripped circuit. (If you have checked your breakers and are still without power, report the outage online or call 888-313-4747 to report your outage)
